Thank you for your feedback.
Good price, size guide is accurate and they fit great.
But these were true to what the website promised and fit perfectly, with room to grow throughout the summer.
Perfect fit and my granddaughter can wear them all day.

    I own one pair of every size of these sandals from toddler 4 to Big Kid 3. I have 4 kids and I wish I could find a shoe that matched the durability and comfort of these sandals. Several of these pairs have gone through 2 or 3 kids already and have held up. The only color that has given me any trouble is the tan, which tends to peal up before even one summer is finished. I contacted saltwater and they immediately sent me a replacement pair no questions asked. We also own a boat and camp on the beach practically every weekend all summer and the sandals are constantly going in and out of the water.

    PROS:
    Buckle secure closure
    flexible
    ridiculously durable
    long life
    dont get soggy
    Always look good

    CONS:
    Tan peels
    Stiff when new(easily rectified by letting your child where them in the bath tub before wearing for the first time)

    Just as a side note I also own 2 pairs of these for my self. One black pair and one white pair. One is a size 9 and one is a size 8 but they are exactly the same size.

    Sizing: They tend to run big, so if the childs regular shoe size is an 8 you would most likely need a 7 in these.

    Beware! The sandal in the picture is not the product I received. I received some generic knockoff of salt water sandals in a plain brown box. The sole is a thick cheap rubber sole. It's not the original saltwater sandal sole as pictured in their picture.

    I LOVE these sandals. I bought a red and black pair, thinking I'd try them on and return one of the pairs, but I liked them so much I kept them both! After reading reviews, I ordered both a 7 and 8 in women's (I think a 5 and 6 in big kid sizing) to see what size to keep. I'm usually a consistent 7.5, sometimes 8, so I thought the 8 fit pretty well, but I'd heard to buy smaller because the leather stretches and you want the initial fit to be slightly tighter. I kept the 7, which did have a slightly tighter fit so I was a little nervous, but I soaked them in water as instructed, and wore them around the house. After just a few minutes, the fit was perfect! So I'd definitely follow the advice of buying slightly smaller than what you normally wear. They are SO comfortable and I totally recommend them!

    I never had these as a kid, but saw them and knew I had to have them. I am usually a size 5.5-6 so I ordered the 3M Big Kid size.
    These fit perfectly, so comfortable. I bought the silver, blue, and red.

    Size: 9 M US ToddlerSpecial Size Type: Little Kid (4-8 Years)Color: Tan Verified Purchase
    We have been through many pairs of salt waters. I used to agree with other reviews to size down because they ran a little big. This season, I ordered a size 8 for my son's size 9 foot. He grew out of that in 2 months. Like toes off the top, heel off the back. I ordered a 9 and find that it is exactly true to size with no room to grow (see picture). The difference between the 8 and 9 seems to be half a size as opposed to a full size (see picture). I can no longer recommend sizing down. And I might have to exchange for a 10 if I want them to last through summer. Also, something I hadn't noticed previously, each pair I've received this season stinks to high heaven of pungent chemicals. Yuck. Thanks China!

    I ordered one pair for myself in yellow and they are beautiful and really comfy. I normally wear EU 38 (US 7) and I ordered US 5 big kid and they fit perfectly. Love them!

    These are my favorite sandals for my little girl! We buy her new ones every summer bc of her growing feet (they last/hold up a very long time). They can be dressed up and dressed down. They are the perfect sandal!

    These are awesome sandals, they just run at least one full size too large. We re-ordered in a size smaller.
